    Video: Oregon says no to chemotherapy, offers assisted suicide instead

    Well there you have it folks. Straight up rationing in the state of Oregon.

    Watch the video, listen to the doctor who tries to tell the reporter that the woman read the letter wrong. Then figure out why the guy cant look the reporter in the eye.

    This is what is coming if we get Obamacare nationwide. Like they said in the video, its cheaper to kill somebody, then to try and keep them alive. Obama wants to cut costs, what better way then to tell grandma its cheaper to kill her off, then to keep her alive? Also, we already got video of Obama saying its perhaps better to give grandma a pill then to give her a pacemaker from a few weeks back.

    Unbelievable.

    Money quote:

    Single-payer systems have to handle medical services as a shortage market, rationing them by using “comparative effectiveness” paradigms to determine who gets medical attention, and who gets “physician-aid-in-dying” instead of it.

    Oregon's lack of Health Caring is the prototype for the National Socialist Plan!

    WELCOME TO THE BRAVE NEW WORLD YOU WILL FIND IN THE OBAMA I DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR HEALTH PLAN

    Read it for yourself if you dare. http://www.lc.org/media/9980/attachm...ama_072909.pdf

    Then once you get informed get involved and stop the National Socialists who's ideas appear to be built on the 1919 to 1945 model and ended up costing over 20 million lives.
    But then there are those who love nothing more than to see world population reduced down to a manageable and sustainable number around 500,000 or so give or take a few servants (slaves). Don't believe me please, Google; Henry Kissinger The Population Reduction Agenda . Then read anyone of a number of the stories and then check them out. Yes some are on questionable sites but some are not and the all say the same thing. That being, you and I are USELESS EATERS in the eyes of the Global Elite. This is not a conspiracy theory it is a well known & documented fact since Kissinger made the speech about at a Bilderberg Group meeting. Then Google; "useless eaters" if you still need convincing and learn the history behind that two word phrase. People need to begin to understand that this isn't about Liberal or Conservative it's about right and wrong, good and evil.

    More doom and gloom, sky is falling lies from the right. SURPRISE!
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    The video is a news broadcast from KATU, Channel 2 news, in Portland Oregon. You can view the news broadcast directly on the KATU website here

    It's not a lie. It really happened. The government decided to discard a cancer patient because she was too expensive.

    ... such events also occur in the private sector for the same reasons. Well, except in most places you rot instead of being offered the assisted suicide option.

    True. Insurance companies routinely deny care that is too expensive. That's to say I think a single payer system is a good idea, but it's not like private insurers don't make the choice to let people die everyday.
    Wow. Am I awesome or what?

    Stop the ranting for a minute and think about what you're saying - do you people really think that the government should be required to pay for whatever healthcare people want?

    The state is not killing this woman, they're simply not paying for chemotherapy. She's free to pay for it herself.

    Requiring that the state pay for chemotherapy even where it's not cost-effective simply because this person wants it is a one-way ticket to bankruptcy.
    People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

    Don't worry by the time Der Fuhrer in Chief Obama has finished his National Socialist take overs the pharmaceutical industries will be included and then he can Dictate the cost of drugs down to a level manageable by the bureaucracy.
    I thought the Liberals were the compassionate ones claiming to be in favor of human rights and all that happy talk? Oh that's right, I shouldn't be surprised they don't care if the elderly die, they're no better than unborn babies. And who cares if the Obama I don't care about your Health and go ahead and kill Granny Plan causes thousands to die while waiting in line for months see a doctor because Obama said himself I head him that your current insurance company will be put out of business. And If you don't don't sign up and pay you'll be find $1000. But not is your a GD illegal alien you'll get your health care free payed for by real Americans.
    Did someone say doom and gloom? Well hell you must have been reading from the 1018 page report. I have and it is horrifying. But then I may have assumed too much thinking a Liberal would read it for themselves, they have the Liar in Chief to tell them what to do. It's almost like having their own Rush only worse. All Rush can do is bun his mouth the National Socialist leader Obama can run the nation into the dirt.
